Nedra Glover Tawwab (IG: @nedratawwab) is a licensed therapist and sought-after relationship expert.

She has practiced relationship therapy for over 10 years and is the founder and owner of the group therapy practice, Kaleidoscope Counseling.

Every day Nedra helps people create healthy relationships by teaching them how to implement boundaries.
